, quote, in the very near future about the u.s. role going forward. the government met with the african union to hammer out a solution. there's violence in other areas of the region as well. in jordan, the associated press reports more than 100 people injured. clashes in ahman were the most i violent in that country in two months of protest. in bahrain, security forces fired tear gas and pellets at anti-government protests. thousands defied a ban on gathering followi ining prayers. and in yemen, the leader says h he's ready to step down, but only if he can leave the government in safe hands. gadhafi is now negotiating. the leaders of tunisia and egypt are already gone. yemen is on the verge of being knocked out, as you heard. these long-running dictatorships are on the ropes. why? because history is changing before our very eyes. there used to be a time when barberism and conquest was par for the course. it was what was expected. the mongols once wiped out a town and destroyed every building, but they also diverted a river that ran through the town. you want to know why? they wanted to

difficulties with that connection. >>> gruesome new details about a group of rogue u.s. soldiers on trial for murdering afghan civilians. "rolling stone" magazine publishing photos taken by a tank unit who call themselves the kill team. the shocking pictures you sigh here show the soldiers posing next to their kill, allegedly innocent and defenseless afghans. m mick, the pentagon trying to keep these pictures from the light of day. what's your reaction? >> the reality here is that the u.s. military, the army, first came upon this story almost a year ago when one of the soldiers of that so-called rogue squad there in afghanistan reported the fact that some of the soldiers in the unit had allegedly killed innocent afghan civilians. and in the course of that investigation, it was army investigators who actually uncovered 4,000 photos taken by soldiers. the vast majority of them happy snaps as you would see as if you were on vacation somewhere, but there were about 100, 120 or so showing dead bodies there in afghanistan, totally against afghanistan regulation. but the most egregious part abou

but that's not part of this mission. >> and talking about the u.s.-supported u.n. mission. >> that's correct. >> talking about that. then how do you coincide the two things, protecting civilians enforcing the no-fly zone with what we see happening right now in libya, that the strikes from the air are paving the way for rebel fighters to retake ground? >> but what has happened is gadhafi with the use of helicopters and airplanes was killing his people. as well as he had threatened to go door to door to door once he got into those towns. so the way to prevent him from going door to door is to make sure those tanks and there's no other airplanes by gadhafi flying to bomb his own people. >> so here we are. we're taking action in another muslim country on a day when "rolling stone" is out with this big article with the kill team in afghanistan. jeremy morelock among others, who stands accused. in fact he's convicted of killing afghan civilians and then taking these trophy pictures of them. how much damage does this do to what we're trying to accomplish in afghanistan? >> well, it does.

answer that would have satisfied speaker boehner. because i will say leading up to the u.s. intervention, the cry at that point was that the u.s. hadn't done anything. and so now that the president has acted, now there's questions there. i felt that, you know, he did explain why we went in. and he also explained what our limited role would be. and that nato has taken over the command of the no-fly zone as well as enforcing the arms embargo. >> but if -- okay, so if the president is saying that regime change is not the goal here, that it would be an ideal outcome, but that's not the goal. and yet you have hillary clinton overseas today with all these other world leaders saying, gadhafi has to go. >> i think there's two different things. i mean, frankly, what the president was saying was that our role was to essentially take the lead in the no-fly zone. and to take out gadhafi's ability to bomb the people of libya. having accomplished that, now nato takes over. and so i think what the president was describing was the limited role for our armed forces. as i understand it, secretary clinton

called the u.s. memory championship which involves memorizing all sorts of crazy stuff and ended up winning which really wasn't supposed to happen. >> so you put this training to use as you say winning this competition, so what were the things that they asked you to memori memorize? what were the crazy things? >> there are several events in one of these contests, one of them is memorizing a poem, one is memorizing a whole bunch of random numbers, one of my favorite events, five strangers get up on strange and essentially reel off all of this biographical information, their names, phone numbers, the names of their pets, what kind of food they like and you've got to recall as much of that as possible. >> what are the techniques that you studied? what are the tricks you were able to use to expand the use of your brain and your memory? >> it turns out there is a whole host of techniques invented 2,500 years ago in sane shent greece, same medieval scholars used to memorize entirely books which have been kind of forgotten about except they are used by the "mental athletes" to compete in t
